"By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked." (1 John 2:5-6)

*A New Journey begins on January 1st:   
Living in Step With the Gospel


  1. The barriers that make it difficult for me to love those who are are 'difficult to love' are when people are rude, argumentative or do not handle power well. I often find it difficult to love and respect my parents or my co-workers, in these moments I am learning to remain calm and ask God for His love.

  2. I was reading a magazine this morning about this topic...the article referred to these relationships as "toxic"...the point of the article was to have relationships with these individuals, but to keep our boundaries, so that they don't influence us negatively...hymn Footprints of Jesus

  3. Pride, fear, and pain. Loving people means I can be hurt by them.
